Today we’ll look at the unique employment challenges for young women in the Middle East and what is being done to grow private sector jobs for them.  We’ll also talk to women from Ramallah and Kuwait who are using a time-honored solution of entrepreneurship to empower women toward financial independence – Joining me to discuss this important topic is Mara Rudman, Assistant Administrator of the Middle East Bureau at the U.S. Agency for International Development.  and learn what it is about women that makes them particularly successful in business.
